Product Information

Full Description

Details

The TS-251 is consumer-grade NAS that supports Intel VT-x and virtual machine applications. Just download the Virtualization Station App from App Center, and you can install & operate multiple operating systems with Windows, Linux, and UNIX. The virtual machines can be used in a variety of different ways to boost the functionality of your Turbo NAS. Virtualization technology is normally solely used in enterprise environments, but with the growing needs of a digital household, virtualization is slowly becoming part of your everyday applications. Many households have printers, and when users want to print out the photos stored on their Turbo NAS, but have a printer with Windows only drivers, they would need to startup their PC just for this simple task.

  • Dual-core Intel CPU and DDR3L RAM, delivering fast read and write speed
  • On-the-fly and offline Full HD hardware accelerated video transcoding
  • Built-in virtual machines technology with Virtualization Station
  • Up to 7.1 channel audio passthrough and high-quality multimedia playback via HDMI
  • Personal cloud for creating a multimedia library with DLNA, AirPlay, and Plex support
  • Centralized storage, file sharing and backup
  • Economical storage expansion with scale-up solution
  • User-based permissions settings
    The Virtualization Station administrator can assign VMs to users and set different permissions to them such as power control, snapshot, advanced VM settings and the VM's view-only console. According to the purpose of VMs and the user demands, administrators can easily and efficiently allocate VM's resources to users.
  • Direct access to files & data via VM
    Specific file formats cannot be opened directly by the Turbo NAS, but the Virtualization Station makes it possible. Administrators can install Windows, Linux, and UNIX on the Turbo NAS to run any supported application or file.
  • Enhance security and save bandwidth
    When accessing files and data on a virtual machine they are not transmitted outside of the Turbo NAS. This provides a secure environment that prevents sensitive data from being intercepted and also saves bandwidth & network resources when you need to access large files.
  • Background hardware accelerated transcoding
    You can add videos to a transcoding list and use the Turbo NAS to convert the original high resolution video for use with multiple resolutions. Then you can select an appropriate resolution to match your environment when sharing or watching.
  • Auto transcoding
    When you set a Turbo NAS folder as an auto transcoding folder, the Turbo NAS will automatically convert the videos in this folder to the resolution you have set. For example, if you set the folder to 360P, the video will auto transcode to this resolution when you upload to this folder as a background task.
  • On-the-fly transcoding
    If you have many high-resolution videos, but did not transcode in advance, you can use on-the-fly transcoding. This will adapt to meet bandwidth limits, with the Turbo
    NAS transcoding in real time for watching the video directly. For this hardware based transcoding technology, up to users can watch videos streamed simultaneously from the same Turbo NAS.
  • Hardware-accelerated transcoding technology
    With Intel HD Graphics video creation & conversion is faster, easier and can significantly reduce transcoding time while handling multiple on-the-fly transcode tasks.

Are we out on price?

We check our prices daily against a wide range of competitors to try to bring you the best deal. However, if you've spotted a better price offered by one of our competitors, please let us know and we'll do our very best to match it.

Price Match Challenge

Is the advertised price & availability genuine?

The IT sector is littered with companies who don't hold stock. Their websites advertise products that are sourced from third party suppliers. Pricing and availability data on such sites is typically retrieved from files or feeds which are often not refreshed regularly enough. The result? Cancelled orders, long lead times and disgruntled customers.

King of Servers is a major stockholder with full transparency into our stockholding and pricing. Our website is refreshed on a 15-minute cycle 24/7 so the pricing and availability you see online is both accurate and reliable.

We recommend you double check a cheaper price elsewhere is accurate and based on physical stock that can be shipped immediately before placing your order.

Do they really have the product in stock?

We show true stock counts on our website, not woolly messages like ‘in stock' or ‘available to order'. Stock levels are updated every 15 minutes 24/7 so you can see exactly how many units we have sat in our warehouse available for immediate despatch.

And speaking of shipping, did you know we offer same day deliveries? You can choose this or other timed services during checkout on our website or contact our sales team for a quote. Handy when you need the goods in a hurry!

Do they specify product condition?

Most web stores fail to specify the stock condition of the products they advertise for sale. It seems reasonable to assume that all products are brand new, unused units supplied in the sealed, original manufacturer packaging and protected by the full warranty but this isn't always the case.

A heavily discounted price can be a sign that the product in question may be a used or refurbished unit. Open/damaged box and ‘ex demo' units are also rife in the marketplace and warranty cover on such goods will be variable so it's wise to check what you're getting before committing to any purchase.

King of Servers displays the product condition on all our product pages. As well as detailing what the condition means, we specify the level of warranty condition allowing you to make an informed buying decision.

Ensure you compare like for like when shopping around for prices online.

Is the product covered by warranty?

All brand new products come with a full manufacturer warranty, right? Not always; it depends where the products were sourced from. You may have heard of the grey market or parallel imports? Manufacturers often stipulate the geographical regions in which their products are designated for sale. Unscrupulous suppliers seek to source goods from outside of these regions at cheaper costs which they pass on via cheaper prices. The downside is that the manufacturer might not honour the warranty in the event of a support call. Grey kit does not qualify for warranty support and if it fails, you could be significantly out of pocket.

All products offered for sale at King of Servers are sourced from legitimate channels and are covered by warranty. For added peace of mind, we can supply serial numbers up front which can be validated on the manufacturer's website to ensure warranty cover is in place prior to purchase.

Ask any potential supplier if they can supply serial numbers ahead of purchase. Any legitimate stockholder who has sourced the goods from the proper channels should be able and happy to do so.

Is the competitor trustworthy?

Look beyond the price and establish whether the company behind the product is a bona fide organisation that you can return to should you encounter issues down the line. This is particularly important if you've never heard of them before. It's relatively easy to set up a web shop nowadays which makes it difficult to differentiate between a one-man band operating out of a home office and a well-established, reputable bricks and mortar business. Sales T&Cs, returns policy and aftercare service are probably important areas for you to consider.

King of Servers is an ISO 9001 certified company committed to supplying products and services that consistently meet our customers' requirements and expectations. We are a Feefo Commended Merchant thanks to our consistently high customer service scores gathered independently from genuine purchase verified customers.
